quero dizer que é preciso sair um pouco de casa, senão você acaba numa fossa danada e não demora está saltando também pela janela. nem imagina como é fácil se meter numa dessas.

hannah: Surface of Mars, photographed by Mars Express, 25th November 2005.

Image runs from 32°S 201°E about 710 km due south across the Terra Sirenum highlands to 44°S 201°E. The Sirenum Fossae run across the top of the 2nd image. The 5th and 6th images show a central section of the 300 km-wide Newton Crater, including what looks like part of the central peak complex (notice dunes, dark blue, on the left hand side).

Composite of 3 visible light images for colour, and one monochrome image for detail. Colour balance is not naturalistic.

Claritas Fossae, Mars

Mars’ Claritas Fossae region is characterized by systems of “graben” running mainly north-west to south-east. A graben forms when a block of the planet’s crust drops down between two faults, due to extension, or pulling, of the crust.

This image was originally released July 13, 2011.

swoon: Clouds over Mars, photographed by Mars Express, 2nd March 2013.

49 to 43°N, 265 to 268°E, between Alba Mons and the Tempe Terra highlands. The diagonal traces are sections of the Tantalus Fossae, which run northeast from Alba Mons into the low plains of the Vastitas Borealis which circle the pole.

clouds & shadows over the coracis fossae, photographed by mars express, 11th december 2013.

277°e 36°s, in the highlands south of solis planum. this view is about 60km across. the fossae are the vertical channels running down the image.

composite of 8 images; 3 in visible light for colour and 5 monochrome frames of animation. colour balance is not naturalistic, and the coloured edges to the clouds are artifact of the composite.

E adesso giochi a fare la vittima. Ora non iniziare nemmeno a dire che sono io quella da incolpare, visto che hai già scavato la tua fossa. Dopo tutte le lotte e le bugie, volevi farmi del male ma tutto ciò non funziona più, è finita.

anaïs: Surface of Mars, photographed by Mars Express, 21st December 2008.

Image runs from 13°S 205°E 770 km due south to 26°S 205°E. The western end of Mangala Fossa and some of the Memnonia Fossae run across the lower 3 images. Bernard Crater is seen in the 5th and 6th images.

Bernard Crater is named after the enigmatic “P. Bernard”, a “French atmospheric scientist”. How this “P.” can be worthy of a 128 km martian crater but not a whole first name, I know not.

anonymous asked:

any songs i can cry myself to?

i literally always cry to fossa by daughter and some other ones r
pendulum - fka twigs
smother - daughter (actually almost any daughter song tbh)
so bad - robert schwartzman
swimming pool - the front bottoms
almost anything by elvis depressedly
me - the 1975
small hands - keaton henson
and yea that’s all i can think of rn

Cut crater in Memnonia Fossae

An extensive network of fault lines cut through this region of Mars, including one that slices clean through an ancient 52 km-wide crater.

The fault network is likely linked to the formation of the Tharsis Bulge, a region to the east that is home to several large volcanoes, including Olympus Mons.

Vast volumes of lava that erupted from these volcanoes in the past were deposited onto the surface, building up thick layers. The load imposed on the crust by the lava resulted in immense stress, which was later released by the formation of a wide-reaching fault and fracture system.

One 1.5 km-wide ‘graben’ cuts through the crater in this image. It also encounters numerous blocks of material that sit on the otherwise smooth crater floor, reminiscent of chaotic terrain found in many locations on Mars.

The crater has apparently been infilled by other materials, perhaps a mix of lava and wind-blown or fluvial sediments. To the top left of the crater, in particular, the sediments have been shaped into parallel features known as yardangs.

thaumasia, mars, photographed by mars express, 16th january 2014.

37 to 45°s, along 259°e longitude. the top half of the image shows the highlands around solis planum, streaked vertically by the claritas fossae. the bottom half shows the lower, smoother icaria planum. 

5 monochrome frames for animation, coloured with a composite of 3 visible light images. colour balance is not naturalistic, and the rainbow fringes of the clouds are an artefact of the compositing process.
